These green bike path marks are being added to the bike lane on Livingston Street between Lake Eola Heights and Downtown Orlando.

The City of Orlando announced on their Instagram account (@thecitybeautiful) that it was meant to “increase the visibility of cyclists and discourage illegal parking.”

We are unsure if this is a pilot program or if it will be expanded to other parts of the city at this time.

  1. About time that green cycle lanes are installed for safety of drivers and cyclists
    A clear distinction for every road user
    There should be more green cycle lanes around

  2. Great. Now put a barrier between that lane and the cars. While we’re at it…can we please stop with the stupid “paver” crosswalks! Yeah…they “look nice” compared with old-fashioned white stripes…the problem is they’re often splattered in blood because drivers don’t recognize them as “legitimate” crosswalks. Dense Orlando…REALLY dense.

  3. The use of green colored pavement for bike lanes is still under development by the FHWA and is authorized for Interim Approval upon request by local agencies, such as the City of Orlando – Your City Government. In Florida, the only cities/counties that have requested authorization to implement green pavement include: Lakeland, Sarasota, Broward County, Miami-Dade County, West Palm Beach, Delray Beach, Tampa, Orlando and Sunrise. The FDOT has requested authorization too, and can implement it on State Highways in any city or county. So, no the City of Orlando – Your City Government is not catching up, but is riding the wave!!!

  4. It’s still a bike lane in the door zone and it’s not a full green lane, but instead green-backed bike markings intermittently placed. It is a step in the right direction, though, for a city that was far behind the curve.
